Help in identifying a curious beaker

Postby tudor » Sat Mar 16, 2019 6:20 pm

Hi guys. I've been a lurker on this forum for quite some time and found solid information here.

I have a question about an item I'm trying to identify. It's a curious one because I'm quite certain that it was modified at some point in time.

It is some sort of beaker that has a silver coin applied in the middle of it. I identified the coin witch is:

FERDIN CAROL D:G. ARCHID AV 1661

My question to you all is about the hallmarks on the bottom. Are these silver markings or silver-plate? Also any more info about the markings will be much appreciated.

THANK YOU!

Hi,
The coin is Ferdinand Karl of Habsburg,Archduke of Austria.
The small mark is Austria - Hungary import mark used 1901-1921.

The rest are pseudo marks (as already explained by Peter). Most likely Hanau, Germany and imported to Austria.
There should be small capital letter in import mark (on the left) indicating assay office,
Regards
